Re: 2019 Royal Enfield 650

They seem decent enough for the money.
Prob best to buy in year 2 to see if there are any issues needing ironing out.

Re: 2019 Royal Enfield 650

theres one of these in sprocket and hubs now, theyre having a bit of a launch day on sunday 17th if anyone is interested. could be a good yoke for the money, worth taking for a test spin anyway.

Re: 2019 Royal Enfield 650

Took a test rice on the Interceptor in Delhi 2 months or so ago, very impressed, couldn't find anything I didn't like about it, love the throaty exhaust note, its larger than I expected it to be...

That's a great looking bike, I'd have that all day long. Seems ripe for customization.

They've definitely nailed the look, wonder about reliability/glitches?....

Re: 2019 Royal Enfield 650

5500 for a Royal Enfield?!! Whoa.. that's crazy!

Growing up in India in the 90s, Royal Enfield Bullets (they were simply known as Bullets) were around 50,000 Indian rupees, which is about 800 euro. These days they are around 1500-2000 euros there I believe may be 3k for this model. Nearly 6k here. I am going to India later in the year - if it wasn't for the kids (and work and bills to pay) I would buy one and ride it back!

And get slapped in the face with VRT to bring it back up to around the same price as buying it here
